St. Francis Borgia Regional High School is one of the few Archdiocesan high schools to be blessed with an Endowment Fund. In 1989, with a strong vision for the future, a group of committed Borgia friends and alumni organized a fund drive to establish an Endowment to benefit our students. The Secure the Future capital campaign successfully raised $1.6 million. Since its inception, guided by a Board of Trustees, the Endowment Fund has distributed over $2.2 million to Borgia. As of June 2016, the fund has grown to $3.2 million.
Income from the Endowment provides critical support to many areas of Borgia. Our Endowment Fund helps ensure that our curriculum, facilities, technology, and a wide range of other areas remain strong.
When you make a gift to the Endowment Fund, you are affirming your belief in our mission and supporting the vision for the future. Donors should support causes that have special meaning to them; we hope that Borgia is such a cause for you.
Supporting the Endowment is a wonderful way to provide a lasting and meaningful gift in remembrance of a special person while helping others in need. Many people appreciate the opportunity to make a gift in memory of a special person, knowing that their donation honors the life of the individual and also supports a purpose which their loved one held dear.
Gifts to the Endowment Fund provide a full charitable tax deduction.
There are many ways to support the Endowment. You may choose to make cash gift, or you may transfer a gift of securities or real estate. If you would rather not make a gift today, you can still make a lasting contribution by funding the Endowment with a bequest in your will or living trust. You may designate a specific amount or gift a percentage of the residue of your estate. Additional information is available at Giving/Planned Giving/Ways to Give.
You may name the Endowment Fund as beneficiary by assigning ownership of a policy to us. Life insurance can allow you to be more generous than you ever thought possible! Contact our Advancement Office or your insurance agent for details.
